Hi, my name is Mat, and I'm a photographer because of the tomato.

My grandfather dedicated his life to the study of the tomato. He went searching for wild tomato plants in the mountains of Peru, dragging my young dad with him. My dad became fascinated with ancient cultures and became an archaeologist working in Peru. My parents then dragged me around the globe doing their research and put a camera in my hands to keep me busy. I fell in love with photography, instantly. Thanks tomatoes!

I went to school and got a degree in photography. Then I went and worked in business development for 10 years, picking up an MBA along the way. Then I came back to photography, just to complete the long, ironic circle.

I love to tell stories with my images. Let's tell some together.
